Pain Management

The following are a few of the many pain conditions that acupuncture has been shown to treat:

  • acute and chronic pain
  • back and shoulder pain
  • joint pain (such as arthritis)
  • pain related to injuries
  • post-surgical pain and rehabilitation
  • menstrual pain
  • headaches and migraines

Why is acupuncture so effective for pain management and sports injuries?

  • acupuncture can improve blood circulation in the area which is affected
  • acupuncture can decrease swelling
  • acupuncture can release endorphins, which can reduce pain
  • acupuncture can promote the body's own natural healing process
  • acupuncture treatments are customized for each patient, not two treatments are identical as no two patients are identical
